2017 505 North Americans

New Bedford Community Boating Center to host 2017 505 North Americans at Fort Taber

The 2017 505 North Americans will be run out of New Bedford’s Fort Taber June 14-18, 2017. The event is expected to attract 60 teams to enjoy the legendary fresh breeze of Buzzards Bay. CBC is proud to cooperate with New Bedford Parks and Recreation and the same race committee and organizational team that have run the Buzzards Bay 420 Championships with over 175 boats.

The shore base at Fort Taber is very close to the race course, and just a few miles from the wonders of downtown New Bedford, the city that lit the world. Sailors will enjoy the racing, but when not on the water don’t miss the New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park, fresh seafood, remarkable antique stores and perhaps the symphony orchestra.
